It was reported that the weekend was the busiest trading day for Windermere businesses in 30 years as not only are there stalls adorning the streets in true festival style but the fantastic independent retailers in Windermere Village were open and offering complete Christmas cheer. The village has gift, clothing retailers, local food producers and suppliers and an excellent choice of cafes and inns for day long refreshments.

It was the local traders in both the stalls and the village itself that proved the biggest hits and this 2017 celebration is set to feature even more. Whether its locally made gifts including scents, food and crafts to locally reared and produced food for the festive table, just make sure if you’re visiting to bring plenty of bags! Hot food will also be available as well as, the absolute must, mulled wine.
